I stenciled a border in the living room instead of using a wall paper border.
Approximate Time: 5 hours
*I used 3 colors of paint to blend the colors to make the ivy look real.
Tape the stencil to the first corner of the wall up against the ceiling.
Paint using a stippling brush and tap, tap, tap the colors on, blending each into the other.
When done filling in all the places on the stencil, remove and carefully match the design up when moving the stencil onto the next blank section you are doing, so you cannot see where the first stopped and the next begins.
Do all the way around until done.
I did not do it all in one day. You must rest your neck. I also did the top of the room divider in my room.
